Crystal Therapy is an ancient healing system concerned with treating patients holistically through the meticulous placement of crystals on the body and the nearby area. Crystal healing is an alternative medicine technique that employs crystals and other as conduits for the natural healing energy. The stones are said to channel positive energy into the body to cure or protect against disease while removing negative energy.

Crystals have a long heritage of being used for crystal healing. Each variety of crystal has a unique internal structure, which causes it to resonate at a certain frequency. Crystal therapy is a sympathetic non- invasive form of alternative healing that works holistically to synchronize the mind, body, emotions and spirit, helping to expand our feeling of well being.

Crystal therapy is based on the premise that crystals can sense or communicate with the energies flowing around the human body. On a microscopic level a crystal is a network of repeating geometric patterns made up of compressed ions, atoms and molecules. Every crystal has its own unique electromagnetic charge. These charges are supposed to interact with the body’s energy to remove ‘blockages’ and restore a healthy flow through the body and mind.


Therapists choose crystals carefully for each individual patient as each one is believed to have a unique healing power. Therapist then places the chosen crystal on different areas of the body in a grid to stimulate energy.


Sometimes the colour of the crystal will be chosen to correspond with the supposed colour of each energy point on the body. From the tip of the tail bone to the top of the head the colours are as follows: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

The crystals are prescribed based on the diagnosis. Each crystal is thought to possess a different energy which can then be matched with the ailment. During a healing session only a few crystal will be applied and they will have been selected based on their specific energies whether that may be calming, energizing, purifying, protective, soft, or one of the many other qualities.

Clear any unwanted or negative energy from the crystal, and then proceed with the method of charging crystals. Set your intentions that you are doing this to charge your crystal for the best and highest good of all concerned.


The sun’s and moon’s ray are very energizing, as well as energetically clearing. One can use this method to both clear and charge crystals at the same time. Find a safe place and leave your crystal for 24 hours or more (up to a week) in sunlight or moonlight. Some crystals colors will fade in Sunlight, so those should be charged only in moonlight. Crystals that will fade in the sun are amethyst, celestite, kunzite, opal and turquoise. If you have any doubts at all, use moonlight charging.


This method is good for grounding stones in particular, such as black stone, smoky quartz, red jasper and others. Bury the stone in the ground for a week or more to charge it. This can also clear unwanted energies at the same time. Be sure when you bury your stone that you mark the area so you know where to find it when the week is up.

Whichever method you choose, the exact length of time needed for charging varies according to the state of the crystal to begin with. Trust your intuition and higher self to lead you to the best method and length of time for you and the stone.
